Steve Kerr took a look at the All-Star Game voting by NBA players and didn’t like what he saw.
The coach, who will be leading the Western Conference team, doesn’t believe the players took the process seriously. This was the first year players were allowed a vote, and their selections were valued at 25 percent of the total ballots.
“I am very disappointed in the players though. I mean, they’ve asked for a vote and a lot of them just made a mockery of it. So I don’t know what the point is,” Kerr said before Monday’s loss against the Heat. “So, that was too bad but all in all, these things are always going to be debatable about who’s starting and who gets named. There’s always going to be worthy players left out of the starting lineup, left out of the roster entirely. It’s the same thing every year and I don’t know what the perfect answer is.”
The past two weeks haven’t been kind to the Cavs from an injury front as well. Kyrie Irving suffered a hamstring injury, Kevin Love reportedly lost 10 pounds due to food poisoning, and LeBron James has been suffering from a nagging cold.
“Schedule, injuries, sickness, a lot of stuff,” coach Tyronn Lue said. “But I mean it’s no excuse. We know what we’re doing, what we’re supposed to do. Right now it’s like, we’re not going to have assists if we’re not making shots [and] shoot 34 percent.
“I mean, how many assists can you really get? Just got to do a better job of making shots but also finishing around the basket when we get in the paint, and get in the paint instead of Nike NFL Jerseys China taking tough shots, kicking it out for open shots. Just got to read and play the game NBA Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping the right way.”
